I just finalized my budget for Christmas gifts this year, and my total came to \$55. From this amount of cash I must provide gifts for each of the 11 people listed below. Basic math will tell you that this restricts each person's individual gift budget to \$5, IF I distribute evenly. Here I will keep a record of gifts planned for each person, as well as the cost of their gift. Suggestions are welcome.

• Mother: | Item: 2010 calendar + pickup of hated furniture | Cost: Unknown x .7 + free
• Father: | Item: oven glove(?) | Cost: \$1
• Brother: | Item: wireless GameCube controller | Cost: \$16
• Sister: | Item: Unknown | Cost: N/A
• Grandmother: | Item: image editing booklet | Cost: freee!
• Aunt (California): | Item: pitch-in toward a family gift | Cost: \$4
• A.J.: | Item: Unknown | Cost: N/A
• U.J.: | Item: Unknown | Cost: N/A
• Kay: | Item: touchable bubbles | Cost: \$1
• T.J.: | Item: Unknown | Cost: N/A
• Queen (because she got me something): | Item: flash drive | Cost: \$13.50
I'll edit this entry as I fill in the list.

EDIT: I've officially started buying things. Green lines are bought and taken care of. I'll keep a track of my remaining total below.

Original Total: \$55

New Total: \$35

That's quite a lot of unknowns at the moment. With that \$15 Game Cube controller, \$10 are going to have to come off of other people's presents, but it's probably doable if you get small things. Oh, and

Turns out the controller's actually \$20; I'm probably not going to be able to get it.

And point to you!
